Browse Other Archival Files

The other archival files collection is organized by original repositories. The table shows how many archival levels exist in each repository’s structure to give a sense of how large each holding is. Clicking a repository in the index will take visitors to a collapsible list of the archival hierarchy starting at the highest level moving to the lowest as each level is clicked. Each link takes the user to a page that shows the metadata, archival structure, and all the digital objects that can be found within that level. Some of the contents of this collection (Custodian Case Files; Fishing Vessel Request Letters; Protest Letters; and Appendix 5 and 10 of Suspicious Japanese Report) have been moved to their own specially curated collections but can be accessed through this browse as well.
Clicking on a digital object link will open a page that has source details for the object and the object itself that can be downloaded as either a .pdf or an .mp3 (depending on the nature of the object). All pages have a sidebar navigation pane that shows where in the structure hierarchy the page sits as well as a site navigation bar above. In-text links typically produce pop-ups of information that are predominantly links to other documents that share references to the link. For example, clicking “Tashme” will launch a pop-up that lists other site records that reference “Tashme” while individual names produce lists of similar names and other documents associated with that name.

Readers of these historical materials will encounter derogatory references to Japanese Canadians and euphemisms used to obscure the intent and impacts of the internment and dispossession. While these are important realities of the history, the Landscapes of Injustice Research Collective urges users to carefully consider their own terminological choices in writing and speaking about this topic today as we confront past injustice.
